Rare talents of KJun of rare, magical, fantasy paintings

During our March and April "Women's History Month" we like to go back and revisit some of the rare talents we met years ago -- just to see how they're doing.

This kind of special talent deserves a new visit every few years . . . hopefully there will be many more to come! March 1, 2014
